In March 2013, part-time private industry workers were less likely than full-time workers to have access to employer-provided benefits, such as retirement plans, health insurance, and paid sick leave.
In March 2013, nearly three-fourths (74 percent) of full-time private industry workers had access to retirement benefits, compared with just 37 percent of part-time workers. Similarly, 85 percent of full-time workers had access to health insurance through their employers, compared with only 24 percent of part-time workers. Full-time workers were also much more likely than part-time workers to have access to paid holidays, sick leave, and vacations.
